The latest news to start ripples across the web is a potential partnership between social check-in app Foursquare, and Apple. The Wall Street Journal has weighed in citing "people familiar with the matter" are indicating that the two companies are in early discussions about sharing data.

 

What could the future of Foursquare be with a close partnership with Apple? Well, we could see some huge data help from each other, and a much more precise iOS experience. That is, if Apple gets its Maps act together.
